This seems to be a tad "too little too late." My local KMart only has about three Saga figures.

Apparantly on those 2 dates at k-mart all Sag Figures will be on sale for 3.49 which is a great deal! If you plan on going what are you looking to get? Just to fill in the commons?, extra clones for army building?, or to get some of your favorites to open up? I will probobly go tomorrow looking to do just about all of those things so i'll tell you what i get

No harm trying, althought they may limit price matching to comparitive stock. Kmart shows habitual pegwamers in the ad, and a price match wouldn't hurt there. But a sale-match on new product might be more challenging. I'd say the first 27 figures are fair game.

Might get a few Geo warriors, but nothing substantial. Damn you, tuition bill.

I checked at Wal-Mart today and they said that they would match prices with K-mart. All you have to do is take in the ad. WM as a way better selection, so I think that I will go there instead.

Jedi_Bates

ya... i'm aware that there is already another post i realized that shortly after i posted this, of you wanna check look at the last message on the other one

I'm guessing they might not because it's not full-fledge competition plus it wouldn't do them any good since they wouldn't be getting profit. (I think Dar' Argol or someone else stated that it costs Wal-Mart $4 per figure.)


Sadly I can't go to the sale. :( My K-Mart while that last few times I've been there they'd had nothing new, they always are at least fully stocked. Would love to pick up some more Battle Droids for 3.49. :cry:

hango fett
07-21-2002, 08:51 AM
you know what? you can just take the ad into wal-mart and get them for 3.49 there if a k-mart has squat!! i just realized that this morning!!

i'll also be taking my ad to walmart for a price match, i would much rather give my business to them .... when ep2 figs were released on 4/23 kmart charged 6.99 ....rip off... in addition, my 4 local kmarts tag ALL merchandise with their tough-to-remove price stickers. since i collect unopened... i would much rather buy walmart's toys which arent tagged.

K-mart won't have crap though...the best you'll be able to get is an army of droids and clonetroopers...
As far as I'm concerned, the Teemto/Maul/Mundi/Ani wave doesn't even exist. Aside from online pictures, there's no reason to suggest that it does...:frus:

Jedi_Bates

I would do that but unfortunately i live somewhere, where the nearest wal mart is 30 miles away

i found teemto and ki-adi-mundi at the local wal-mart last night. i picked up 2 of each. i went out after i read the case assortment section. d'ar argol had it down in there and i wrote down the asstment number. i say 6 cases out on the sales floor, checked the number and it was the new cases. thanks d'ar argol!!!

i haven't seen the tatooine attack anakin or the traing maul yet. any idea when they are due out??

Well I just got back from my K Mart (SE Wis) and I was in the standard action figure section and found almost nothing. I went around the corner to find a endcap full of figures and found 6 Yoda + 6 Dookus.....look like the wave for filling out the hard to find is over.

jonboy
07-21-2002, 04:52 PM
Also got back from K-mart. I bought a bunch of BD's, that was about all that they had. Then, I went to my Wal-Mart and gave them K's ad and they matched the price on the 19 figs that I picked up there. Wal-Mart has a way better selection anyway. I got a total of 34 figs.

i picked up a single battle droid.... because thats all i really wanted lol

TRU price-matched the Kmart ad and I got 7 Sneak preview clone troopers. My future Gunship is going to be fully loaded.

07-21-2002, 05:56 PM
I picked up a few that I wasn't planning on getting. I snagged the Super Battle Droid, Peasant Anakin, Han Solo, red Clone Trooper, and both variants of Final Battle Jango Fett

I merged the 2 K-Mart ad Threads:)

The K-Mart near me had . . . . . . . .zip!! Well, nothing that I already didn't have carded and opened. I was hoping to find a couple Endor Rebels, or a background Geo Warrior or Dexter, but they didn't even have those:(. All they had were OPD Ani's, Arean Padme's. a few battle droids, 1 super battle droid. a bunch of Kit's, and a few Jar Jar's. I was really disapointed. I might see about getting the price differance on my Layaway figs and that them home then:D

I had HUGE success with the Kmart sale. I bought 10 figures -- basics for my collection that I hadn't picked up yet and army building Super Battle Droids -- at Kmart and in the afternoon went to TRU with the ad and picked up 12 more. I might pick up a few more battle droids today!!!

Congrats on all your success guys!! I wish I had stuff at knock down prices here... But alas... sad

Just so all you people know that I just got back from K-Mart getting my price adjustment and they WON'T give you the difference if it's been over seven days since your purchase. So what I'm gonna do is return the figures and then rebuy them at the sale price. Screw you K-Mart...I'll get my figures ON SALE!!!!!:D :D :D :D HH

I bought like 7 figs to open at K-Mart and bought 3 more today price matched at Wal-Mart. Plus I rebought figures for $3.49 which I had already had paid $4.99 for, and took them back with the $4.99 receipt, so now I paid $3.49 for about half of the 42 saga toys

I never got to check out K-mart since the two closest stores to me closed down about two months ago. It is a shame because that means there is just one place I can get SW figs in my hometown now. But thank god for price matching. I just took the circular and had Wal-Mart price match three figures I bought. I wish I hadn't bought all 40 figures yet since I could have scored a good majority of them today for only $3.49

This is not directed at anyone 12 years or under as I was your age once and understand you can't wait to have the new figs to paly with.

Way back when I told you all WAIT! Those of you that didn't heed my wisdom got porked, again. I said weeks before the new figs came out to wait as they will have a sale and mark them down. I got twice as many figures yesterday for what you paid for one at your cheesy midnight madness sales. Yodas, Dookus, Anakin Duel, even Bespin Vaders and Skywalkers. Maybe next time you will listen to me. I've been doing this for 24 years.

I went to Hasbro's store in Pawtucket 2 years ago and got all of the first wave of POTF (orange and green cards) for $.99 each. I built my early collection paying $1.99 and $2.99 at KB and Toys R Us. You can fool me once, but not twice. Sales will happen and for Saga it took a little longer than Ep. 1. Don't panic as the stuff always goes on sale. POTJ was a little different as there was no movie to back up huge production runs. If you value the dollar, the patience should be a virtue.
